The popular beauty ingredient Jessica Alba claims is 'unnecessary'
Starting out selling non-toxic nappies, Jessica Alba’s e-commerce site, The Honest Company has grown from strength to strength since expanding into the world of natural beauty.
Valued just shy of $1 billion dollars in 2017, the brand has successfully gained a mass and loyal following of people all eager to be kinder to the environment, their skin and quite frankly, get a little bit closer to that iconic Jessica Alba glow.
However, if you’re yet to try out any of the products on offer like the cult-favourite Hydrogel Cream, the Internet is busting with the next best thing: beauty tips from the non-toxic beauty founder herself.
And the latest pearl of wisdom? The popular ingredient that the mum-of-three believes we just do not need.
Speaking to Bustle, Alba revealed her “must-avoid ingredient in skin care” is *drum roll please*, fragrance. A regular on any sensitive-skin-types blacklist, Jessica suggests we could all benefit from avoiding perfumed formulas.
“I would say the number one thing I look out for is perfume and fragrance”, she said. “It’s just unnecessary, you don’t really need a synthetic fragrance in your skin care or makeup”.
In fact, when it comes to her skin care ethos, Jessica shared, “I really want to give to my face what a green juice gives to my body.”
So if you’re ready to walk away from the perfumed product life and treat your cheeks to a big ol’ glass of metaphorical green juice, here are our recommendations for some fragrance-free goodies: Eau Thermale Avène Extremely Gentle Cleanser, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Protectant, CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion, Elucent Eye Cream, SunSense Ultra SPF 50+
